Mini meatball recipe

By May 19, 2014 October 17th, 2015 Freezer-Friendly, Oven, Recipes

Here’s a recipe for baked mini meatballs that I’ve been making for years!  When I come up with a recipe this good, I keep making it over and over again.

Mini meatball recipe

This is my absolute favorite recipe for baked mini meatballs.  They’re moist, flavorful, and very versatile.

Here’s what I do with them:

  • Eat them with spaghetti
  • Serve them to my daughters for lunch or dinner
  • Add them to a crockpot with sauce for appetizer cocktail meatballs
  • Make Italian wedding soup
  • Make meatball and veggie soup

The great thing about this mini meatball recipe is that you don’t have to decide.  This recipe makes around 100 meatballs, so you can use them in a couple of dishes.

Mini Meatball Recipe

Yields: About 100 mini meatballs

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup Italian-seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 tablespoons Worchestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 2 teaspoons steak seasoning spice

Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. In large bowl, combine all ingredients.
  3. Use a rounded teaspoon to scoop small meatballs onto cookie sheets or casserole dishes.
  4. Bake meatballs in pre-heated oven 20 minutes, flipping about half-way through. (I also flip oven racks at that time.)

To Freeze

Cool to room temperature and freeze in a gallon-sized plastic freezer bag.  When ready to use, thaw in refrigerator overnight and use in your favorite recipes.

Would ground turkey be ok if n place of ground pork? Due to we can’t eat pork.

If I wanted to use these as part of a slow cooker recipe, would I add them raw or cooked to the slow cooker?

Would parsnips work instead of carrots?

This recipe was part of your gluten/dairy free meatball vegetable soup but these aren’t gluten/dairy free. How can I adapt the receipt to meet that requirement? Thanks.

So you add the already cooked meatballs to the crockpot and they cook for that many hours again? Or do you add at the end?

Lauren, these meatballs are baked, not crocked 😉

I have the same question. If you bake the meatballs, but then want to add them to the meatball veggie gluten free/dairy free soup recipe on this site, do you add the meatballs at the very end or at the beginning of the soup cooking time? And please comment on how you would do it if the meatballs are baked, then frozen, and then used for the soup recipe. Thank you.

Nicole, if they are pre-cooked you can add them at the end. If they are baked, then frozen, I would thaw them and then add them at the end to warm up. You can also add them raw and cook through.
